I do not understand the constant comparison of the Surface Pro to the iPad and MacBook Air. Why not compare it to a PS3, or a Toyota Prius. They are not in the same category, and someone who is in the market for an iPad is not in the market for the Surface. I would not even consider buying an iPad, thus I am in the Surface's demographic. Honestly, though, I feel like the Acer Iconia W700 is a better all-around deal, but I simply could not find one in a three month long search after its release. They are both excellent and remarkably similar devices, the Acer is just cheaper and you get more included in the box. But since I could not get my hands on one, here I am with a shiny new Surface Pro, and I am perfectly content with it.
The Surface looks great. It is definitely a well-made device, and you can tell a lot of thought went into every detail. It may be heavy compared to a Kindle, but to me it feels like a computer should. If this is too heavy for you, then you probably need to go to the gym more. In landscape mode, the Surface is short and fat, which works well for some programs, and not so much for others. In portrait mode, it's long and narrow. Again, sometimes this is good, and sometimes not. The material feels smooth and high quality. However, when you are holding up a $1000 tablet, that smoothness is a bit unnerving. I'd recommend a case if you're going to be carrying it around a lot.
This is what you buy a PC for.Read more ›
When I say everything I mean that...
1. It can be used as a Desktop replacement
I just connect the Surface Pro to a large monitor via a DisplayPort-to-VGA adapter. Since I don't have a Bluetooth keyboard and Bluetooth mouse, I connect the keyboard to the Surface Pro's USB port and the mouse to the USB port on my keyboard. The Surface Pro drives 1920x1080 resolution. Since it uses Windows 8, it runs all the programs that I use on a day-to-day basis.
The CPU, RAM, and storage are great for most of my needs. I've already loaded Quicken, MS Office Suite, VPN, StarCraft 2, NXClient, etc. and have a lot of room to spare. RAM usage is usually sitting at 2 GB or below running 11 software applications at once because Windows 8 Memory Management has been improved significantly. Don't believe me on the Memory Management stuff? Then, check it out on Developing Windows 8 blogs.
2. It can be used as a Laptop
It is small and light. At first I thought the 10.6" screen is too small (since I do a lot of programming). But now, I've gotten used to it and realize that size is just right. (Ofcourse, if I really want to do programming work with a big screen I hook the Surface Pro up to a large monitor - the one I have at the office or the one I have at home (see #1 above)).Read more ›
Be aware that the storage space is better than some of the Apple Centric reviewers say. Included in the drive is a full copy of Office 2013. You do have to buy a license but it is already on the drive. Also there is a full back up image.
The battery life is a little low for a tablet, I am getting about 5 1/2 hours but that is of constant use.
The screen resolution is amazing, I think better than the iPad which is also excellent resolution.
So far there is nothing that it will not do. It is not a high powered desktop replacement but when I am out of my office it does everything I ask. My notebook now sits on my nightstand and is used there. I carry the Surface Pro everywhere.
The prices quoted here on Amazon are very high, check the retail price before you pay a premium.
The Microsoft store I went to last weekend sold out a pile of them (literally a pyramid) in about three hours but they say that more are on the way.
If you want a no compromise tablet that will not make you miss having a real computer with you I highly recommend this unit.
My goal was simple: can I ditch the tablet and laptop, and get 1 device to really support all of my needs?
The Surface Pro delivers in a near-perfect way.
I travel from desk-to-desk; the only time I'm on battery is for occasional meetings or short day trips. I'm never more than a few hours without access to a plug. Yes I'd love to see better battery life, but that complaint doesn't really impact my personal situation.
I use a large 2nd monitor, and contrary to what I feared from other reviews, the TEXT LOOKS GREAT AND MONITOR SCALING HAS NOT BEEN A PROBLEM.
- system is highly portable
- it runs ALL apps and software. The first time I connected to my work VPN, connected to SQL server, and remote desktops, all from a tablet-sized machine? AWE. SOME.
- type cover is great, I can type full speed with no problem
- USB port means that any peripheral works great; I normally use either a mouse or a USB hub for extra devices
- everyone comments that the screen looks brilliant and crisp
- I have never heard any fan noise at all, the thing is completely silent
- I set up multiple user accounts for my kids, with Family Safety turned on. One tablet not just for my needs, but it also works well with my kids
- The C drive has 118GB of usable space. This is after I created an external recovery drive (on a microSD card), which allowed me to delete the recovery partition that ships with the device.Read more ›
